Baby Girl #2's Room - the FINISHED product!

Sorry - I got a little lazy in posting additional blog posts about all the craftiness in baby girl #2's room but I figure this post will make it up to you.  :)  Here are pictures and information about the ENTIRE ROOM!
walking into the room....

Canvas DIY art above changing table (see post #2), 'bonne nuit' sign recycled from baby girl #1's nusery, lovely knitted pink throw on glider made by wonderful friend Joyce B for baby girl #1 (she can share....), scrappy lamp  (see post #1)

homemade fabric garland using charm pack from Riley Blake's line "Hoo's in the Forest", vintage tablecloth on side table next to glider and changing table
My Mom made this contoured changing pad cover using Tiffany Blue Minky fabric..... she used this tutorial: Contoured Changing Pad Cover Tutorial

Paper Lantern Mobile as seen in post #4 and crib bumper as seen in post #3

Gallery Wall:  purple 'hands' artwork I did in high school, three Ikea frames that I spray painted using leftover paint from the scrappy lamp, hoop art as seen in post #5, small floral print found at Goodwill for $2, "Love" print purchased at Hey Day in Bozeman, MT - absolutely drooled over this print for a good 30 minutes before deciding to just purchase it - was only $50 and the colors match PERFECTLY!!!!!!

Would you believe I made the crib sheet?  Yep!  I used this AWESOME and super easy tutorial:  Crib/Toddler Sheet Tutorial.  I found the fabric at JoAnne's!  The crib bumper is so fantastic... I LOVE how it turned out!  The crib skirt is from Land of Nod and went with the bedding that baby girl #1 had in her nursery.

this is a simple white Ikea Dresser (Koppang) but I added gorgeous (and splurge-worthy) knobs from Anthropologie.... you can get yours here: Zinnia Knobs, the white birdhouse was a cute find at HomeGoods a few weeks back

I love this print - by a very talented and awesome Etsy artist:  thewheatfield shop, the white frame was on clearance at A.C. Moore for $10, small floral buckets were at Target around Easter ($2 each), white Ikea shelf and ceramic piece is a 'found' piece from around the house

these are AWFUL pictures but gives you an idea of the window treatments:  found these 'blackout curtains" at Target ($15 per panel) then added Jumbo White Rick Rack Trim at the bottom and used turquoise ribbon as ties.  More of the garland/bunting I made using Riley Blake fabric
slightly better picture of the rick rack detail....

I am really pleased with how well the room turned out and it was so fun to add so many crafty/thrifted/DIY projects!!!!  What do you think?  Will Baby Girl #2 be pleased when she arrives?  Only 6 more weeks until we find out!

I am doing my first link up today to Life Made Lovely!


  1. Wow. Just wow Ame. This is so beautiful. Love the scrappy lamp especially!!

  4. Very cute! I love the crib bumper! I made one for my first baby and hated how it turned out, but I might be tempted to try again after seeing how cute yours is :) Love the crib sheet too; the store-made ones are all so ugly! Love the fabric you chose :)
